Lagarde noted that they will recalibrate all instruments, suggesting that another stimulus package will not just be limited to PEPP. ECB sources later noted that the governing council had discussed recalibrating PEPP, alongside TLTROs.

EUR/USD: Risks remain tilted to the downside for the Euro with the 1.16 handle quickly approaching, thus ahead of the election the Euro is vulnerable to another leg lower as Euro longs continue to head for the exit. Elsewhere, with investment bank month-end signals now touting USD strength from earlier in the week looking for USD weakness, eyes will be on near-term support at 1.1630 before 1.1600-10. On the topside, resistance sits at 1.17.

EUR/JPY: The grind lower has shown little signs of easing, in turn, raising the risk of an extended move towards support at 121.14, which marks the 200DMA.
